    Making each present moment the best moment in my life, whatever the task at hand demands.
    Thanks for the thought-provoking question!

      One's purpose, indeed, is to live for the moment!

    my purpose in life I think is to do things that make me feel good. What makes me feel good is making a difference in other people's lives and in the lives of animals. I care deeply and want to help, and so if I succeed at that, I've fulfilled my purpose.
    I love helping people and animals in need....my reward is the happiness when I'm able to do that.

    To fulfil the rights of the Creature and his creation.

      Thanks for sharing a profound insight. Some of us are already aware that such fulfillment allows for great things to happen in our life and the world around us.

    I believe we are all born with a purpose in every life. We may not be aware of this always, and some may realize this at another later date, yet we should strive to fulfill our roles to the best of our abilities and hopefully to be a benefit to all about us and a blessing. I realized my role as an educator and artist. I have tried to share in my writing as well, and wish to provide a stimulus and a form of encouragement to those who view and read my works.

    The Westminster Shorter Catechism has it right in question #1: "To glorify God and enjoy Him forever;" which means I need to enjoy him and teach others to do the same right now!

    My purpose of life now is teaching my children to help people in their lives whenever they can. Seeing them growing up and soon having their own families. Guiding them the right path and seeing everyone health. That is my purpose and goal in life.
